With beautiful memories and after having a pleasant stay at Trichy we planned to visit Puducherry from here.
How to reach Puducherry from Trichy?
Best and the cheapest way to commute is to catch a Train from Trichy to Villupuram (around 3hr journey), and then catch another train from Villupuram to Puducherry (1hr journey). if you doesn't get a connecting trip from Villupuram to Puducherry, you can take a cab from here to reach Puducherry. This will not cost you more than Rs. 800.
Where to Stay- Hotel Ginger offers a very good low budget value for money stay at Puducherry. Other options like Club Mahindra holiday homes can also be explored.
Formerly known as Pondicherry, Puducherry is a tasty cocktail of traditional french architecture with modern Indian society.
It won't be an exaggeration ifI say it is the most peaceful city I have ever been to.
Based on my interaction with locals, I can also say that the Puducherry people are equally awesome.
One can observe a deep impact of learnings of Sri Aurobindo on this city.
How to commute
Rent a Bike- I took a bike from Pondicherry bike rentals which is run by this awesome man named Sh. Vijay Arya.
He makes an awesome impression on you, making you feel you are meeting a sincere Puducherry citizen, when he says welcome to "My" City.
It costed my Rs 800 per day for a brand new Bajaj Avenger, with which I got helmets, Puducherry map and a small lecture on the DOs and DON'Ts and whereabouts of this city.
